  • Jazz/fusion, classical
  • Started brewing back in the nineties, in Oslo/Norway, using extract kits. I brewed for my annual x-mas party. Brewed a few batches of wine too. The results were not very consistent and I gave up. Not many sources of good info back in those days. Internet was something we had only heard of. Craft beer interest grew from 2007 onwards when I had moved from Ireland to France where I got exposed to French and Belgian ales with plenty of taste (and alcohol). From being interested, seeking knowledge led to sources such as the Jamil Show and this home b rew forum, and started to gather the pieces and build up my home brewery. Brewing in my garage with a cheap, manual, home-made setup, based on gravity, electricity and gas.

    A little update at my end. The label doesn't look so great after several months storage in my
    cellar, but the beer is still good. Flavors have mellowed and changed quite a bit, I now pick
    up a licoric...

    Awesome! From your photo, the color looks pretty much like mine. Did you use a mix of lager and
    ale yeast? Also, I have a box of both beers waiting to ship your way since a few months, but
    for some re...

    I guess since I wrote the recipe I should brew it at some point. Your description is pretty
    enticing. If the beer is still tasty 6 months out from brew day, that's a good sign. In the
    spirit of the or...

    Favors get better/more blended by now?Apologies for late reply, sablesurfer. I find it quite
    hard to taste-judge own brews, perhaps aryoung might care to leave a comment, as he's probably

    After lagering for over a month at 2C, this was dry hopped and bottled, still at 1.020. The
    result is not very good, due to the yeast profile. It's really not the clean lager I hoped for.

    Also realized I don't have the right type carafa to do it properly. It should be the dehusked
    type (carafa special 111). Anyone tainted their bipa with something else than grain? Could one
    not just br...

    So, you all pointed out this was gonna be too roasty for a bipa, and you were of course
    correct... Indeed turned out more like a hoppy/cascadian stout. It's tasty now but not too
    balanced, there are s...

    I read over the yeast instructions again that same evening and increased the controller to 12C
    as per the manufacturer's recommendations.Unfortunately the ambient temp where the fridge sits
    made ferm...
